If you mention the phrase “self-storage”, many people automatically think of somewhere to keep furniture or unused, excessive personal belongings and household items – not many people associate it with business. Businesses, however, can benefit greatly from utilising self-storage units – many small businesses especially, whether you work from a home office or a space in an office building development, often find restricted space a problem as the business grows and develops. Office storage can provide a dedicated, safe and secure space away from your office premises.
Here are some examples of how self-storage can benefit your business:
Declutter your office to create a great environment
Using business storage is a great solution to any space problems you may have within your work environment. Decluttering your office will automatically create a more open, spacious and professional work environment for you and your staff. This, not only provides a practical solution to your physical space restrictions, but also helps with both the comfort and the morale of your employees – and, as any good employer knows, the happier the staff the more productive they are likely to be, thus providing a viable ‘bottom-line’ benefit!
Office storage is safe and secure
Business storage will provide a dry, secure and convenient environment in which to store anything from office furniture and documentation to office equipment and surplus stock. Business self-storage provides twenty-four hour access, allowing you to be able to utilise whatever items you’ve stored at any time, as and when required, without it permanently occupying valuable space within your daily offices.
Depending on the type of business you have, there is often a legal, or mandatory requirement to retain specific documentation for a set period of time. Items such as invoices, receipts and other documentation can be bulky and space consuming – other office supplies and stationery can add to the problem. Office self-storage allows you to keep these important items in a secure, but easily accessible, place until you need to access them.
Short term business storage is ideal for office moves
If your business is preparing to move premises, or perhaps being refurbished, then these facilities are ideal as short-term storage. Alternatively, these units are usually very cost-effective and much cheaper than renting larger, industrial warehouse space, so are also great for longer-term storage solutions, for items such as office furniture not needed on a daily basis, but may be necessary in the future, or perhaps, for heavier equipment, tools and such.
Local storage facilities will be able to provide you with plenty of options, and guarantee you a storage space to match your requirements, whatever type of business you may have.
